Are you looking for a place to transition from treatment into sober living? Michigan sober houses and halfway houses provide the ideal place for a smooth, easy transition from addiction treatment back into society and a lifestyle of sober living. Those who are in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction can move into a sober house and live with others who are also in recovery, sharing peer support and similar goals for sobriety along the way.


Michigan sober living environments are found in most major cities and smaller towns as well. They resemble a typically residential home on the outside but on the inside, residents share the home with others who are also newly recovering addicts. Residents may share rooms with others or they may each have their own room. Costs such as rent, utilities and other household expenses are commonly shared amongst all residents of the home making this a more affordable option than living alone would typically be.

Michigan Sober House Rules

Every sober house is different and the rules that you are expected to adhere to could change from one sober home to the next. Typically, the primary rule that will not change no matter where you live in a sober house is the rule of drug and alcohol abstinence. All residents are required to abstain from the use of drugs and alcohol while they live in the sober house. This rule is very important because breaking this rule most certainly results in eviction from the home.

Various other rules may also be included in the guidelines when you decide to move into a sober house. Some Michigan sober living homes require that residents have a set amount of time already in sobriety such as 30 days sober while others only require that the individual entering the home have completed drug or alcohol detox and no longer be physically dependent on these substances.

Many sober houses require residents to adhere to a strict curfew that does not allow the coming and going of anyone living in the home throughout the nighttime hours. Many also require that residents continue to attend regular meetings or support groups such as AA or NA.

When the rules of the sober house are broken, residents are faced with consequences. Some of the consequences that you may expect include fines, eviction or loss of privileges. The manner in which rules are enforced is typically set forth by the sober house manager or moderator and are explicitly stated in the contract that you sign before you move into the residence so there are no surprises along the way.
